stayed in the matina for 5 nts with two other couples as we were attending a wedding. can honestly say we couldn't find fault with anything during our stay, it was very clean tidy and the staff were very friendly especially Athena the barmaid and Vangelis the owner who went out of his way to ferry a large group of us to a restaurant the other side of the isle, will definitely return some time. thanks

My boyfriend and I spent a week last summer at Hotel Matina. It was ideally positioned to visit the main attractions and beaches of Santorini while still enjoying some downtime by the sea in Kamari and by the pool.

Hotel Matina definitely has one of the best swimming pools in Kamari. The staff is polite, friendly and discreet, offering lots of helpful tips, advice and indications on how to get around, The rooms are small, but quaint. The beds are not the definition of superb comfort, but they do suffice The bathroom is also small, but the water pressure in the shower is good. Would have been nice to have a full length mirror, but you can't have everything :) We also had a fridge and a cute little balcony that looked out onto the garden.

Breakfast is simple and the same everyday, juice, coffee, cakes, packaged cookies, hardboiled eggs, yogurt, cereal and cold cuts.

Would definitely recommend this spot for its location, staff, cleanliness and pool. Very good value.

We stayed for one week with our two boys aged 7 and 9. The family and staff's hospitality was second to none. They could not do enough for us. Many returning guests were there when we were there and all had nothing but praise for the hotel. It's ideally located close to bars and restaurants in a lovely garden setting. We love Santorini and we'll definitely visit Hotel Matina again.

This was my first time in Santorini and I am traveling with my friend who has been to the Hotel Matina twice before. He told me about the lovely family that runs the Hotel. They were welcoming and friendly and made us quite comfortable. Love the Hotel, the family and even their dogs. Come once and you'll have to come again.

We have stayed at Hotel Matina twice, July 1993 and July 2012, same family run business and same amazing and personalized service! We loved it so much the first time we named our first daughter Kamari after the village and our second daughter Matina after the hotel and our host! It was a pleasure bringing the girls at ages 18 and 14 (along with their brother) back in 2012, plans are now in the works for another visit in 2014!

My family and I stayed at the hotel Matina for our daughters wedding. The Hotel is lovely and we were all made very welcome by the family who run the Hotel. The Hotel is in an excellent location, with easy access to the beach and buses to get you around the island.We booked the transfers with Vangelis which were brilliant, no waiting around. A trip to the local taverna with Vangelis is a must, we're you can eat traditional Greek food, and was thoroughly enjoyable. Lots of local Tavernas to choose from within a short walking distance. The family at Matina are brilliant and cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable, they helped in every possible to make our daughters wedding a success, and I thank them for this. I would definitely return to the Hotel Matina, and look forward to meeting all the family and staff who made us feel like part of their family. The hotel itself is very comfortable and quiet with a lovely pool. WILL DEFINITELY RETURN NEXT YEAR..

Room Tip: We stayed on room 38 37 34 which were all nice and quiet

My boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 days. The location was great, just a few mins walk to the kamari beach, so that we could enjoy the sunshine. We rented a car, so everything became much easier. I highly recommend everybody to do so!!
The best thing about this hotel is that all the staff were incredible! We bought a few bottles of wine in a museum, which were not allowed to be taken on the plane. We knew nobody in santorini and there was no post service in the airport. So we called the hotel, and they came here and posted everything!
Btw, the puppies were sooo cute!!! Always say hello to us whenever we got back to the hotel.
Overall, it was a very nice place. Nice breakfast, clean room, good decoration, incredible staff!
Just one thing, the swimming pool was closed during the time we were there, so make sure you are going there in a good season!
